Michelada


1 bottle
A pale or golden colored lager beer, made with water Pilsner malt and Noble hops. Pale lagers tend to be dry, lean, clean-tasting and crisp. In the case of Saisons, this is a farmhouse style pale ale that is meant to be crisp and refreshing.
1 oz
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
5 dash
Also known as chili sauce or pepper sauce, this is a condiment, seasoning, or salsa made from chili peppers and other ingredients. Used for its spicy flavor due to the organic compound capsaicin.
3 oz
Tomatoes are commonly used in Bloody Mary type drinks. Tomatoes are know for their natural monosodium glutamate (MSG) which gives the tomato a umami flavor (same as parmesan cheese, soy sauce, mushrooms ...). MSG is not bad for you.
1 pinch
Often used to rim a glass for cocktails or made into a solution to add to the liguid itself in order to balance the flavors. Table salt or common salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of salts; salt in its natural form as a crystalline mineral is known as rock salt or halite.
1 pinch
Pepper gets its spicy heat mostly from piperine derived both from the outer fruit and the seed. Black pepper contains between 4.6% and 9.7% piperine by mass, and white pepper slightly more than that. Used in classic cocktails like the Blood Mary and everything under that family.
1 wedge
Small, round, green citrus fruits. Commonly used in many cocktails for its rind or its acidic taste (6% acid total; 4% citric, 2% malic, some succinic acid).

Rim a pint glass with salt and pepper. Fill with ice. Add lime juice, hot sauce, tomato juice, salt, and pepper to the glass. Top with beer. Garnish with a lime wedge. #build #ontherocks


Try with some umami too, soy sauce or Worcestershire. Also modify what you put on the rim.
